  Coaching Clinics!

I will come to your school and
will work with any number of coaches!
If you want more info, please contact me at  Here is a sample: 

The following topics can be covered

* Winning isn't the big deal.  Teaching, doing the right thing, being a role model, having positive character traits IS the big deal.  Then, you'll win more than you thought possible.
* Always, always, always be prepared for practice. 
* Have high (yet reasonable) expectations for your players.
* Run useful drills that correct their issues, or focus in on what successful teams do (serve receive, relentless defense, serving, setting).  DO NOT do the same drills night after night. 
* Don't expect your girls to become a team.  You must help them bond.
* Don't expect parents to be "good".  Tell them what you expect.  And then there are consequences for not doing that. 
* Plan so far ahead, you'll have parents drooling!  My team website is here.  Everything that's going on is on it. 

We can also go through the various opinions regarding:

* starting lineups
* rotation vs. perimeter defense
* playing time
* 5-1? 6-2?  When? Why?  How? 
* Assistant coaches

If you wish, we can also demonstrate proper fundamentals in all skills:

Jump serving, serve receiving, jump setting, quick offense, etc.  
You name it, my staff and I can do it.

Well, if I didn't know before, I know now why you have a paid service offering scouting. You were 125% on the money regarding [our opponent] last night.  They beat us just how you said they would.

January 4, 2011

The serve receive formations you sent me were exactly what I needed! You have answered all of my questions! I really cannot tell you how much I appreciate your help…. I am on your website now.

I have used some of your ideas you sent me to modify some drills and get us into pressure situations and I think they are paying off. Not only are the girls enjoying the situations but last night we beat the 4th ranked team in the state in our division at their place. It was pretty exciting with the final game score being 17-15. Thanks for your help sir, it's nice to have resources like you. I hope this helps my girls realize they can take that next step in their game.


April 2, 2006
Can't wait to get a look at the tapes.  The drills are great too. I've used a couple already and the girls really had fun with them. Thanks for your dedication to the sport.

Example Scouting Report.  November 1st, 2015

Central runs a 5-1.  The setter isn't a good dumper or hitter.

They aren't dangerous in the middle, but will get a few kills with tips and throws.  Central's MB last night was completely overmatched by Western's MB and she should be overmatched by yours also.

Their #14 on the outside (low elbow) hits hard.  I'd cheat over toward her.  I think she's Central's most dangerous hitter.

Their two little DS's passed and dug GREAT last night, and their other passers were good too.  I was keeping some stats using the 3,2,1,0 method.  #8 passed 2.11 (11 serve receives) and #6 passed 1.89 (19 receptions).   Good news:  #11, their third passer, passed 1.38 (15 receptions), was aced 4 times and was trying to give every pass up to #8 and #6. 

Their 3-person serve receive is 2 up and 1 deep.  They could not pass the serves that were hit into the deep corners.  So if you have some girls who can serve deep 1 or 5, that may get you a few more bad passes.  If I were coaching your team, I'd just serve floaters down the middle and in the deep corners and say, "Bring it on." 

Whoever beats Central has to beat them at the net with height & spiking.  I don't think there are many teams who can beat them by shear ball control.

One of their 5' DS's plays all the way around.  Her base is on the right, but she doesn't block, but just shuffles off to dig.   Your OH's will have a nice time hitting the line vs. one blocker when she's in the front row.

Their defense is typical 3 blockers up (even though 5' comes off as soon as the other team passes the ball), and back row has 2 short and 1 deep.  Last night Central had a number of issues regarding who takes the seem ball............on tips and (amazingly) even on frees.  So, some tips and dumps may fall b/c of their confusion.  And the coaches just fuss at them..........not reminding them or helping them with which ball is whose.  I was surprised that the coaches fuss so much and show so many negative emotions.  If you can a lead, keep pushing........b/c the Central's coaches' fussing may be your ally!!

I bet they served 95% in the court......or higher.  I remember only 1 bad serve in the three games, so there won't be easy points that way.   But they had no way to stop Western's MB.   I was surprised that Central, even with months of preparation, wasn't doubling or even tripling the middle. Central's 2nd MB is only about 5'8", so she had no chance one-on-one.  Their 1st MB got three blocks, but is was b/c the Western set was too low and Western's beast just hit the ball into 1st MB's arms. 

Central likes to serve short and they like floaters.    #9 and #5 especially like to serve short, and they didn't miss a single one, so be ready.  The other girls will try it, but aren't very good at it.
